Designer Ralph Lauren was said to be "furious" that the Duchess of Cambridge didn't attend his Windsor Castle gala earlier this week
"Ralph Lauren was furious when he found out less than six weeks ago that Kate would not be there," a source told the Daily Mail. "He considered pulling out but was told by his PR advisers that it would look terrible. The company thought they were getting Kate, the most famous clothes horse in the world, and also a runway show at the castle."
While the Duchess may have been a no-show (someone's got to babysit), Lauren - who didn't exactly look like a man filled with fury - did manage to draw an incredibly starry bunch to the soiree, including two other very famous clothes horse K/Cates, Moss and Blanchett, as well as the likes of Cara Delevingne and Emma Watson. Who needs the Duchess when you've got that bunch?
